Replace the hydraulic hose also --- the hose can collapse inside and the brake fluid cannot return, (allowing the pressure at the caliper piston to relieve), and your caliper sticks --- it is actually the piston that is stuck.

Had Some New Rear Brakes installed on my 2001 Buick LeSabre V-6. I'm getting a Low Thumping Sound Like someone beating on a 55 Gallon Drum Now, Low-speed only, Not consistent


the shop is at fault as they have done the job and are required by law to find and fix any problems related to their workmanship
I would take it back and stand firm in your demand that they fix it under warranty any and all faults arising from their fittment of the parts and workmanship
other than that it sounds like the pads are hitting on a raised section of a disc and because it fades at speed ,it could be that the calipers are stuck on the mounting bolts and are not centralizing after brake operation
if the shop tries to "Fob" you off then see a lawyer to get results

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean


The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards also...my second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

How to retract brake caliper piston?


Hi, if this is a front caliper that is still on the rotor, I pry between the rotor and rear brake pad to push the piston in. I usually have to pull on the caliper a bit to get it retracted enough to get a screwdriver in between. If the caliper is already off the rotor, I leave the old inside pad on the piston and put a large c-clamp over the caliper to push on the pad and retract the piston. If this is a rear disk caliper or if you have any questions, please reply.

Steps to replacing rear brake pads


A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

Any tricks changing the front disc pads?


Nice Car...no tricks on front pads on this model...Be sure to use quality pads...Ceramic pads are cleaner and quieter...and are worth the extra bucks...The calipers are removed by 2 bolts...you can then just lift off the rotors (no hold downs) Be sure to use a hanger to hold the calipers in place while installing the new pads...Try to budget and include replacing the rotors along with the pads...this will assure smooth operation...You must push the pistons back into the calipers in order for the new pads to be installed...if the pistons return completely, you do not have to bleed or open the brake lines...:) Hope this helps...

1996 mazda b3000 rt front brake seems to not disengage enough. i have replaced caliper & brake line.


take the caliper off and check the brake pad slides to make sure the pads arent sticking and dragging. also check the wheel bearing to see if it is bad because it can cause the rotor to set at a slant and rub on the pads.

1995 BUICK LeSabre front drives is brakeis sticking already replace it with a new caliper, what else can it be?


IT sounds like the brake pipe ,you might have a problem with the flex pipe as some times it breaks up inside the pipe on return and holds it on slightly or the disc isent buckeled enough as it has to have a slight bow in the disc to return the pads back 1 thou
(or -.0001" ) both sides.
But when you do the brakes you should do both sides and new rotors and pads ..
